approach towards the role of education. community college is an incredible institution in san francisco. it is where people in their mid-careers need additional skills to meet the market demands of a new workforce. it is where many people who don't make it into berkeley and stanford and all the great institutions come to get an great educational start. it's where a lot of economically-challenged families invest in their kids. it is where veterans, returning from afghanistan and iran and iraq come because they are not ready yet to apply to the big universities. they are smart enough to do that, but they want to get going at city college. >> do you see the city in this budget cycle actually carving out a dollar amount? >> here is what we're doing, because i don't think it is always to be measured by the amount of money you give for bailouts. i have been paying personal attention to their accreditation program. i have had interim chancellor scott in my office and i had the state chancellor, who is in charge of accreditation in my office, on the phone, on a monthly basis. i have worked di

, invest in college education, invest in retraining. we created the interstate highway system and invested in the infrastructure. we built the middle class and helped poor people get into the middle class. it is what we are not doing now. tavis: i am frustrated consistently by this pseudo debate in washington. words make a difference and words have meaning, and you keep using the word investment. i agree with the that in these kinds of outlays, these kinds of budget priorities would in fact be read by me and many other fellow citizens as investments, but you have folks on the right who don't read it as an investment, they read it as trying to spend your way out of the mesh or in, and you don't dig deeper hole by spending money that you don't have. you have to live within your means. you have heard this rationale time and time again. talk to me about the difference between what you see as an investment and what others on capitol hill see as throwing money down a black hole. >> is entirely different. families understand the difference. a family faced with the choice of borrowing money for a

and universities, they are getting any educational bang for that buck, many kids and their parents concluded they are not, after years of paying typer loans, that prompted colleges to push steeper tuition hikes, kids tell the schools to take a hike, now the schools are becoming magicians, and rolling back the price or at least their darnest to contain the price, they are getting what some of their own schools have been teaching pay for performance, but if you have to wonder if this is awaken, too late? because very folks to whom they are reaching out have long left, and gone. what to make of schools that can no longer take what matt, christian, and lindsay, what do you make? >> you know, it is misleading there are some institutions that are making concessions in terms of tuition costs, when leak at the system at a whole, tuition costs are still to the rise, so the growth rate may not be as gross as it has been but till is on the rise, this is continuing to be a problem for the average american family in terms of affording to send their children to the college without an aid or financial assi

for young people to get an education and start their lives. you look down, see the intersection of those two and say, look, as a country, if we're going to make this kind of investment in our big banks, lend them money at a little tiny interest rate, can't we do the same thing for our young people trying to get an education? that's all i'm looking for. >> here's the devil's advocate response i thought of, right. are you beginning a slippery slope, setting a precedent, if you open up the fed discount window to students, we just did a story last night about a municipality in michigan saginaw shutting down the school because the credit line from the state has been cut off, i thought they should be getting the fed discount window, too, you start thinking of all the people that should be borrowing from the fed discount window, is there something scary about opening up that pandora's box. >> i'd just reverse the question if you let me. that is, why is it we've been supporting the big financial institutions with these very low interest rates for years and years now? so they can borrow money at very
